Last visit of the year to the local farmers market and, an early for us, purchase of a bargain tree. Now resplendent with 'multi-functional' lights, lets see how long we can put up with those! I also purchased some tiny holly leave decorations for my Christmas cake and happily purchased one or two items from a new shop in the town, it is nice to be able to use my earnings in the local economy rather than relying on the world wide web.
In preparation for Christmas I have bought one or two books to read to our little visitor and this one caught my eye whilst browsing in the Harbour Bookshop in Whitstable on Friday. A sweet tale of togetherness, sharing and opening your home to others over Christmas. I very much recommend it, although haven't yet tried it out on the younger generation.
Now all I have to do is sit on my hands and not spend anymore money so that I can start the new year debt free.
Hope your preparations are also going well xxx
